Learn About Moody Library

Moody Library

Online Students: You have access to the HCU Moody Library Journal Databases for peer-reviewed resources only from the library website under “Articles”.  These resources are available using your HCU Portal login credentials (HCU email and password – no PIN is required). Two-thirds of our books are e-books, which are available via the “Books” search tool.

If you need assistance, please contact a librarian or a staff worker by calling 281-649-3180.  You can also use our CHAT service from the library’s homepage.

Tutors are also available. Appointments can be via the phone or chat if necessary.    If you have trouble using Pathfinder, feel free to email the librarians at reference@hbu.eduor the tutors at academicsupport@hbu.edu.

As an online HCU student, you may also use the Moody Library in person while in the Houston area. Please display your HCU Student ID Card. Current HCU Students can receive their first HCU ID in the library on the 2nd floor.
